Olympic Weightlifter Jessica Taylor teaches you how to do a proper goblet squat with and without weights. The goblet squat is a full body exercise that primarily targets the lower body including the glutes, hamstrings, and calves. It's great for beginners because it requires you to hold the weight in front of your body making it easier for you to maintain proper posture and it lessens the pressure on your lower back. Before getting started, Jessica recommends putting the weights aside and practicing your squats first. Once you're comfortable in your stance, Jessica will show you how to turn that movement into a goblet squat by adding weight.
